Stephen Smith graduated from Brunel University in the United Kingdom with a BSc (Hons) in Sports Science. He also holds a Diploma in Osteopathy from Surrey Institute of Osteopathic Medicine, also in the United Kingdom.
Stephen, who is a keen runner and cyclist, deeply understands the unique demands of an active lifestyle. He has sports-specific knowledge that he applies in managing chronic, acute, and overuse injuries. He customises his treatment programs and uses effective hands-on management techniques and evidence-based exercise protocols not just to treat injuries but also to prevent recurrences and assist in recovery.
Stephen’s practice focuses on relieving patients’ symptoms, supporting the body’s natural healing process, and establishing a good balance of flexibility and muscular support. He manages various musculoskeletal conditions including spinal pain, headaches, and migraines as well as postural strain associated with pregnancy and work ergonomics.
He is registered with the General Osteopathic Council (UK) and Osteopathy Board of Australia and is a member of the Australian Osteopathic Association. He developed an interest in osteopathy after receiving treatment for neck injuries he suffered while playing rugby as a teenager.
The Osteopathy and Podiatry Centre is a private clinic conveniently located on Orchard Road, Singapore’s retail and entertainment hub. It brings together the expertise of internationally trained osteopathy and podiatry specialists as well as dietitians and massage therapists to address a wide range of foot and lower limb injuries, pain conditions, postural problems, and sports-related injuries. Its goal is to provide long-lasting pain relief and long-term solutions so patients are able to enjoy an active lifestyle and better quality of life. The clinic strives to be at the forefront of value-based care, innovation, and technology and constantly works on redefining healthcare standards to continuously improve patient outcomes and experience. The Osteopathy & Podiatry Centre was the first private clinic in Singapore to implement the 3D scanning technique to obtain accurate measurements for the creation of orthotics. The clinic has its own laboratory in Australia where custom-made orthotics are manufactured using only industry-approved materials and advanced technologies. The clinic, which is driven to be recognised as the go-to clinic for anyone who seeks state-of-the-art facilities, relaxed environment, internationally trained specialists, and friendly staff, does not believe in one-size-fits-all solutions and customises its therapies and treatment programs based on each patient’s unique condition, physiology, and lifestyle needs. Its specialists commonly cross-refer within the centre as well as to specialists outside of the centre as they strive to provide the best possible care for patients.
